strong in the broken

Perhaps strength doesn’t reside in never having been broken, but in the courage to grow strong in the broken places.

If you have been broken, you can become strong again.

Broken does not mean ready for the discard pile, as the world views broken things, people, dreams.

Broken in the Kingdom means God is able to rebuild you better than you were before.

Broken means pliable, use-able, willing.

Pliable in God’s hands.
Useful for His plans.
Willing to be His, despite your brokenness.

I never dreamed God could use me….product of a broken home, too young when my innocence was stolen. Sensitive, artsy, lonely and bottled up inside to keep the hurt & brokenness from coming near the surface.

Because the world sees brokenness as not worth the time repairing.

God sees brokenness for what it is, the main reason He came to earth.

To restore the broken.

Who are the broken?

Every person who has been hurt, ever.

Every person who has been rejected, ever.

Every person who has been battered, physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually.

Ever.

Jesus came yo let us know that the lowliest in the status order meant as much to Him as the upper class.

For we are all broken, although we may not always show it to those around us.

God not only sees our brokenness, and the pain, hurt, anguish and turmoil it causes us…He experienced it.

Jesus died broken.
Physically brutalized.
Emotionally drained.
Mentally mocked and ridiculed.
Spiritually feeling disconnected.
As He died on the cross
Publically.

His sacrifice switched how we view brokenness forever.

God loves us so much, He has made a way for all who are broken.

To be made whole again.

To have a purpose.

To live out the plan He has for us.

To be loved, to receive love.

To know without a shadow of a doubt:

Brokenness is not a sign of shame.

Brokenness in our Creator’s hands becomes our strength as His strength and healing flows into the places where we are, to become were, broken.

He takes the broken shards, and like a mosaic, fashions something even more amazing than the original. The new us He knew we would be when we place our shatteredness in His hands.

Take courage if you are in a season of brokenness.

God will come.

God is here.

God restores.

Nothing is impossible for Him.

No brokenness, no matter what it is, places you out of His reach.

Anything is possible. 😉
